Dakota Access trying to keep oil spill documents from tribes and public
March 3, 2017
With oil set to flow through the Dakota Access Pipeline within a matter of weeks, the project's wealthy backers are still trying to keep key documents away from tribes and the public.
According to the firm, "terrorists" or people with "malicious intent" could use the information to try to damage the costly and controversial pipeline once it becomes operational. But the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and even the Trump administration are calling the concerns vastly overblown.
